World geology layer in OpenWebGIS: bedrock geology 2D and 3D


OpenWebGIS offers to get acquainted with interactive geological map in 2D and 3D. (http://opengis.dlinkddns.com/gis/opengis_eng.html?openwebgis=MndKhD2vEfKuHNqETFwf8Wl2)
Map was got from OneGeology (http://www.onegeology.org/home.html). OneGeology's aim is to create dynamic digital geological map data for the world.
